    I have a Minolta SRT 101 with a collection of lenses, filters, etc. Does
    anyone know if there is a current digital body that will accept these

    I've been looking for a wide angle digital camera and remembered the lens I
    have for the Minolta and thought maybe I could get a second life out of this

    Thanks for any suggestions.


    If it's right for you, then it's right, . . . . . for you!!!

  2. If you can find an adapter, you might be able to use them in manual mode.
    At the moment, quite a few people are using Zeiss Contax lenses on Canon EOS
    bodies in manual mode, so you might be in luck if there is a suitable

    (My first decent SLR, an SRT101, hides in my cupboard for my
    beneficiaries/descendants to find when I'm gone... and there's a few
    batteries for it.)

    Not a whole lot of articles remain on the SRT series, but you might be
    interested in reading this:

    Not really. Minolta sold the license for the lens mount to Seagull a
    few years ago when they sold over the license for the X-700 and the
    lens mount to them. Seagull had been producing the camera under a
    license for Minolta for years. No other camera companies were
    interested in Minolta's manual focus lens mount. The lenses can be used
    on Seagull cameras and if they produce a digital camera, it's a
    possibility they'll continue the lens mount for that camera. Many
    people with the lenses are hopeful but there hasn't been any news yet.

    Where are the adapters available?

  6. Check out the Canon DSLR forums at www.dpreview.com - there was a flurry of
    postings about this a short time ago. It's all a bit beyond me as I like
    using AF, and disabling this expensive feature seems somewhat foreign to me.

    There are many situation where AF isn't necessary for getting a good
    shot -- landscapes, macro, portraits, etc. In those situations, it just
    comes down to which lens has the best glass.
